From the CDSS The Country Dancer, March, 1951:

LOUISVILLE CENTER Hot Time in the Old Town

The last dance of the evening for the regular meeting, January 23, of the Louisville Country Dance Center was "The Fireman's Dance." The dancers enjoyed it so much they insisted on repeating it shouting "Fire, fire, fire," in the choruses. Eight hours later the dancers learned that the University of Louisville's Student Union Building, where they had danced, had burned to the ground during the night. "We later learned it was due to an explosion in the heating system," said Mrs. Phil Millet, secretary-treasurer of the group, "but you've no idea how we all felt for a while !" Thanks to comment on the incident in the press, many people knew of the Center's plight, and the dancers received a number of kind offers of meeting places.


Thanks to Peter Rogers for finding this.

           The Human Body was designed to walk, run, or stop; it wasn’t built for coasting.” C Hightower

          

Life is not a journey of coasting to the grave with the intention of arriving in a pretty and well

     preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways thoroughly used up, totally worn out and proclaiming

                                                                                   WOW WHAT A RIDE!!!                         -Hunter S. Thompson, "Gonzo"


“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”   -Friedrich Nietzsche


...frequent disputes arose in the Ball Room, by different persons performing the Figure differently from others, and each persisting in his own opinion, and declaring his manner of performing the Figure to be correct.
